A city block separated the gala, held at Graves, from Epic Nightclub where some fool (my word, not the chief’s) took a gun that shot and killed a 27-year-old man. Rapper Yo Gotti was performing.

Sunday night, in that lovely polyester uni and a bulletproof vest, Harteau attended roll call, decried the senseless violence and lack of talking witnesses and joined her troops in a late-night patrol of the Warehouse District.

A moment with Jeannie

Barbara Eden and Melissa Gilbert, two stars of “One Song,” a movie shooting in Excelsior, attended an investor’s reception Friday.

Eden told me it was lucky she packed a beautiful red suit because she didn’t know in advance about the swanky gathering at the home of Cathy and Kevin DiLorenzo. Normally Eden said she brings only casual clothes, like jeans, to movie sets.

I was showing Eden some photos I had taken of her and she asked me not to use one of them. I deleted the photo in front of her, remarking that it was like magic. She crossed her arms and nodded her head as though we were shooting an “I Dream of Jeannie” scene.


C.J. can be reached at and seen on FOX 9’s “Buzz.” E-mailers, please state a subject; “Hello” does not count. Attachments are not opened.
